's meteorologist jim dickey of accuweather.com. >> good morning, rob and sunny. unfortunately, keeping it chilly across the northeast. many spots without power. these are temperatures you expect you step out the door this morning. many in the 30s. burlington, syracuse, around the freezing point, pittsburgh, detroit. it's not going to end. sandy, what's left of it, large area of low pressure spinning over canada continuing to usher in chilly air. a couple showers here, nothing much in the way of precipitation but this northwesterly wind will continue. that brings that chilly air in out of can did turning progressively colder each night headed through the weekend and that sets the stage for potential coastal snowstorm. wouldn't be anything like sandy here. more your typical nor'easter. two potential paths, one could take it out to sea. rob and sunny, back to you. >> say it ain't so. >>> new york officials are facing criticism for going forward with the new york marathon this sunday despite the devastation left behind by sandy. the actual course through the city's five boroughs suffered little dama
president next tuesday. >> i would add, right before we came on, i got a memo from jim messina the obama campaign manager essentially pushing back on the idea that pennsylvania is now a swing state. so to mark's point, the president himself might not be engaged and rightly so but his campaign is still active. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to g
spoke with the former head of the republican party of florida, a guy named jim greer who is in his own trouble over charges about some illegal money thing that he was doing, but when he was running the party he told me that republican consultants came to him and said, we want to craft a bill that would get rid of early voting if we could, or severely cut it, because in the words of these consultants, according to jim greer, all it does is bring every african-american out from under a rock, that's a quote, and get them to vote for democrats. they don't vote for us, it doesn't help us. so the republican legislature which in 2010 became more tea party, more conservative, there's no margin in it for them to increase access to in-person early voting. what they did is passed a law that didn't touch absentee voting, which republicans tend to dominate in, but severely limited the early vote. just to give you some numbers, you're talking about there were 96 hours, there are 96 hours this year total to vote. there were 120 hours in 2008. and already in the state, 3.46 million people have voted.
zone. abc's jim avila shows us some of the surpring ways natural gas could blow. >>> that brings us to the fire ravaged community in the new york city borough of queens. for the first time yesterday, residents were able to viz sit their burned out homes. 111 burned in the firestorm. all the rez,000 dnts who lost everything, all they could do was go poke around in the ashes hoping just to find something. for some it was simply too much. >> i can't believe -- just two months ago we were down here. it's crazy. >> new york governor andrew cuomo toured the fire zone yesterday and promised residents that their community will be rebuilt. >>> and, i -- i keep coming back to the story. of all the scenes we have seen. countless scenes to kind of, it breaks your heart. that scene, in breezy point really its heartbreaking. not just your home, but your friend and neighbors for years. and even itch you survived it, you, you are in the midst of this scene. >> destruction. think that's what we saw in the ninth ward. katrina. certain people lost their homes. but those who still had homes, all they h
. >> for more on where it is going and what's left we are joined by accuweather's jim dickey. good morning, jim. >> good morning, rob and paula. well, the worst looks like it is over here. sandy will slowly weaken as we head forward. a look at radar imagery, the northeast and mid-atlantic. >> okay. technical difficulty there. we apologize for that too. the question we were talking about earlier, the brunt of the storm is over. at issue, back surge, we are talking about, of course, high tide, as well, in a few hours this morning. >> i was talking with our meteorologist ginger zee. i said is it over? what more can we expect? she says there will be a back surge. with the back surge, you might expect higher wind. we don't know to anticipate more flooding, probably going to come when the sunrises. when the sun rises that's when we'll see the aftermath of the extent of the storm. sam champion our weather editor said, quote, this is the scenario everyone feared when making disaster plans. >> that's why, nickname it the perfect storms. so many dangerous factors collided and now we are seeing the afterm
that things are getting worse. >> so we took that particular question to meteorologist jim dickey of accuweather.com to see how unusual a weather pattern like this is. >> good morning, rob and paula. well sandy will likely go down as one of if not the worst storms to ever impact the new jersey beaches and new york city. the reason behind this unprecedented impact is the unusual path this storm took. sandy's path took it directly into southern new jersey. a worst case scenario for the region. now here, every line you see on this graphic is the track the tropical system took that impacted the new york city area. well, as you can see, a number of tropical systems did hit through the years. no storm took that path into southern new jersey like sandy did on monday. so, why this unusual path? why is it unseen until now? first off, important to note, tropical systems do spot in october. the atlantic hurricane season ends november 30th here, there is a secondary peak in october of tropical storm formation. in fact it is because the storm occurred so late in october, in my opinion, that it
to colorado for the son of former rockies manager, jim tracy. first baseman, mark tracy. the white sox picked ken williams junior in the sixth round of the 2008 draft. he hit two- fifty with thirty r- b-i in double- a last season. ryan dempster could return to the cubs. he's a free agent now, and g-m jed hoyer had preliminary talks with dempster's agent. the cubs are looking to bring in a veteran pitcher who would sign a short- term deal, but dempster could be too high- priced. hoyer says the team still has a good relationship with dempster, despite the failed trade to atlanta last season. that's a look at sports. your live illinois lottery drawing is next. winning pick 3 numbers. >>1,4,0 winning pick 4 numbers. 3,6,0,2 get yourself a ticket. have a glorious afternoon. i love how clean and healthy my mouth is right now. i wish i could keep it this way.

has eased restrictions on foreign flag oil tankers. jim cantore has more for us on this problem. >> hey, tamron. this is what i would call an orderly gas line, even though it's packed, it's orderly he. people are lined up to each pump, and they filled the tanks with tangers that came in here. this is a nice supply of gas here at the vince lombardi truck stop. back towards the west, you can see here this gentleman, this police officer is actually directing traffic coming in from the exit into which line they should get in. as we show you where that line is, it travels all the way back up around to the turnpike. last night we understand this line was all the way out into the turnpike, which creates a dangerous situation there. so this is pretty good. you have about an hour and a half wait to the end of the line so you're able to get gas. there's no limits here on how much to get. they ask everybody to be respectful of everybody else. if you have five five-gallon tanks strapped to your roof, that won't make a lot of people happy. you have 50% of all the gas stations out there that

. michele bachmann is locked in a tight race against democratic challenger jim graves. the right wing's war on women came up in the last debate. bachmann was asked about richard mourdock's remarks. bachmann wouldn't tell voters where she stood, dodging questions about abortion, access for rape victims. >> you heard what richard mourdock said and you know that has been controversial. god intended this to happen if a fetus results a consequence of that rape. i want to know if you agree with that. >> what i agree with is i'm 100% pro-life and i agree with the position of the catholic church on this issue. >> let's bring in kelly goth, political correspondent for theroot.com and democratic strategist chris kafinis. the war on women. these remarks by mourdock continued to erode away. how big of an impact is this going to have on these races? >> huge. it already is, right? and i think the way i look at this, ed, is the other perspective of the gop was that this election cycle was essentially about three issues. the economy, the economy, the economy. and that is partially true, right? but you can
out there and passing it along. meanwhile, our accuweather meteorologist joins us now. jim, what can we look forward to tonight? >> this is probably the worst of what we will see. headed forward, slowly improving. at its worst right now, we do see some heavy rain across the northeast and the planet. the heavy rain has sort of moved out of eastern pennsylvania and new jersey. moving onshore and the winds the winds continue to come in with a little that is why we why we are seeing the schools are continuing to be dangerous and -e unprecedented in many cases. central new jersey into coastal new england. as we are watching the high tide come in, that will decrease as we head through the night. winds are vessey, power outages widespread. sixty, 70, 80-mile per hour gusts. the rainfall further inland as
find it. let's deal with the system the way it is. and that's why jim and i have a difference of opinion on this idea. >> you know, j.d., i think the republican response, the conservative response to the affordable care act is symptomatic of something broader. to me it has badly damaged the credibility of the conservative movement over the past few years. that is if the obama presidency, i would say it's moderate. it's been incremental. you look at the health care plan, as you say, which has bee insurance, the rescue of wall street, saved wall street as we know it. the stimulus, national security policies that were held over from bush. i could go on and on. the point is this, republicans confronted with an administration that showed time and again they did want to work with them and incorporate some conservative ideas. republicans instead responded by simply saying this is socialism, massive government, a threat to freedom. has the conservative movement destroyed its credibility by responding so hysterically to what has really been a moderate president? >> well, you know, i th
